Verdict

The testing ground could play a big part in the outcome of this as recent winners Last Sovereign and Go Go Green would ideally prefer a faster surface despite having every chance at the weights. GREEN PARK also has strong claims on today's terms and previous wins in heavy going should stand him in good stead here as he takes a drop in class. A literal interpretation off the weights also gives Needy McCredie and Lady Nickandy a shout but whether either is good enough to take advantage is another matter.
